This is definitely yard sale season. I see lots of signs every Friday evening and I check Craigslist for the nearest Saturday morning sales with furniture and/or old stuff. Since I did not do a whole lot (OK nothing) of painting the past two weeks, I like to show you my future projects.. BTW this is how I drive around on Saturday mornings…if you see me, please wave.
The first piece is a lovely little secretary desk that needs some TLC. I bought this at last Saturday’s yard sale for about 20 dollars. Not bad. Nothing is broken and it is actually pretty sturdy.
Do not ask me how I stuffed this tank in my van. I had about two inches left between the drivers seat and stirring wheel. Super heavy and super sturdy but I HAD to have it because I have seen some creative painters out there who changed this ugly sideboard into something spectacular. I think I like to try the dry brush technique. We will see.
Next item was my very first FREEBIE. I was about to drive back home when I saw this lady together with her daughter carrying a beauty to the curb:
It is a vintage vanity that can also be used as a desk (mirror folds down). It needs minor repairs and some fresh paint of course.
Well, this was my Saturday morning. I had a great time and my hands are itching..cannot wait to start!
